NebraskAccess, a service from the Nebraska Library Commission, provides the State's residents with free online access to thousands of full-text magazines, journals, newspapers, genealogy resources, business information and much more. The Nebraska Library Commission purchases access to these resources with funding from the State of Nebraska.
If you are using NebraskAccess from a school computer, no password is necessary. If you are using the service from a computer outside of school, you will need a password, which changes twice a year. Contact Mr. Smidt to obtain the current password for District OR-1 Public Schools. Please note: if you don't have the PHS password, you may also use your driver's license number to log into NebraskAccess.
